Suggestions

  • When driving on a freeway…move over if possible into a center lane if you see emergency vehicles on the side of the road.
  • Be sure to put your car lights on in the daytime to ensure better visibility to other vehicles.
  • Be alert to stopping ( not trying to pass) a school bus.
  • Don’t drive aggressively by tailgating and bullying people on the road.
  • Don’t carry over your personal anger into “road rage”.
  • No drinking and driving.
  • Allow a fellow motorist to come out in front of you in a line of heavy traffic.
  • Always yield to pedestrians.
  • Don’t Speed. Highways are not raceways!
  • Be cautious of emergency vehicles. No rubbernecking!
  • Always use child safety seats for any child being driven in your car.
  • Always use seat belts. In most states it is the law.
  • Slow down in bad weather.
  • Don’t text while driving. In many states it’s against the law.
